The classic American bandana first popularized by Hollywood cowboys was originally influenced by Indian textiles, patterns, and dyeing methods. Our printed patterns are designed to look like American-style bandanas, but are made up of Japanese symbols and patterns.
The Katazome pattern is inspired by traditional Katazome papercut prints. A stencil is meticulously cut from paper, and a paste is applied through it, for fabric to be resist dyed. These papercut patterns are incredibly unique works of art, and we strive to share them through memorable products.
Each bandana is printed in Portland, Oregon.
